This hotel situated on the main high street is a grade two listed building but the standard is first class Rooms at the front claim a sea view (over the roof tops) and castle view (through the tree tops ) Some noise from the traffic but Criccieth closes at eight p.m.!
The hotel appears to be in the throes of a major referb our room 217 had all new furniture a state of the art shower and all that is needed is redecoration and modern pictures to complete a very comfortable room. The food was good served on hot plates by very friendly staff nothing was too much trouble if you wished to slightly alter the very varied menu.This was set out on a weekly basis so you had plenty of time to adjust your meals during the day in order not to clash with the excellent four course dinner.Reception staff very good always ready to consult the computer if their local knowledge was not sufficient. A good location for touring Snowdonia .Nine person modern lift.

Room Tip: Second floor front

We stayed at this hotel for the nights of Friday and Saturday 6th and 7th September. I have upgraded to a Castle View Room, which I was really pleased we did as the view was very nice, even though you are on the main street through Criccieth. Very large room and bathroom, with both a bath and separate shower. The room and bathroom were very clean. The room could have had a couple of comfy chairs. The tv was a bit out of the ark, but then this room had not been refurbished.

The only problem we had was that breakfast was served between 8.00 and 9.00 a bit early when you are on holiday. This is probably due to the fact that they mostly have tour parties of senior citizens in, and as we all know old folk like to eat at set times.

Taken this into account we had a very enjoyable stay at the George IV.

Stayed at this hotel on an Alfa coach holiday. This is quite an imposing hotel both inside and outside. The service is good but tends to reduce in quality when the hotel is full [diningroom].. There are two bars, one also being the entertainment room. Problem with the bar is the beer, like other Leisureplex hotels it's Tetleys. Not a tempting beer. Our room with a castle view [£20-00 extra each] was very spacious with a bathroom having both a bath and a walk-in shower.
This hotel is situated on the front street, and therefore front rooms suffer from a lot of traffic noise. There is also a pub opposite the hotel which had an outdoor disco on our first night at the hotel. Noise was horrific and together with the traffic noise did not make sleep easy. Food is of a fair standard and there are choices for all courses. Would I go here again,? Most definately as it's quite near to Snowdonia which is absolutely breathtaking.

Room Tip: If your a light sleeper, ask for a back room, no view but a lot quieter than front rooms.

I too spent 7 days here as part of an Alfa coach tour. Rooms were the problem as normal; when you are a single person paying a supplement it seems the smallest rooms are allocated. Room 102 is small, dark and window is beside the fire escape so that I could not open it. The mess around the area outside was disgusting; the kitchen fan hummed continually and the smell of cooking was unbearable. I was given another room next day which was slightly better looking into the wall of the building opposite but no fan and no smell. Another guest moved twice, once because of the size of the room and secondly because the phone was not working - 88 yr old who does not use a mobile. Happily 3rd time lucky he was given a room in the new part of the building with a phone that worked. The staff and the food are both excellent though don't ask for anything Welsh, as a chain they don't do local food. The entertainment the first night is great but after that it's a bit of the same. A rather sad old hotel needing TLC.

Room Tip: Avoid room 102, 201 is slightly better.

It was the only hotel available in the area at short notice and we came to it with some trepidation, seeing all the armchairs lined up against the wall in the large lounge and reading the information that breakfast was only available between 8 and 9am and the time of the evening meal time would be advised to you, and if you missed your slot.......
However, we needn't have worried, the staff were pleasant and helpful and the room beatifully presented with a newly refitted bathroom. The view from the room was less than inspiring, over a derelict building next door , but hey ho it was a base and we were warm and clean and enjoying ourselves in beautiful weather.
The main bar was enlightening with it's dance floor and entertainment from the residents explaining their operations and displaying the scars - we were in bits.
The breakfast was particularly pleasant with unusual choices to eat and an abundance of rich characters that stopped any talk on our table whilst we watched and listened to the waiters and other guests that were better than the evening floorshow.
The only shortcoming was the parking , which was a little hit or miss.
We left fullfilled with food and humour that we shall drink out on for some time to come. I would thoroughly recomend a short to encounter such a delight.

Room Tip: Book on line it is so simple and the checking out was even easier. The front bedrooms overlook the s...

Have just spent 7 days in this Hotel and was made very welcome by all members of Staff.
Some parts have not yet been refurbished but still were very clean.
We had a huge room (109) which was at the front of the Hotel. A good tip is to telephone the Hotel and ask for a front view bedroom as some of the side rooms looked straight out on to the wall of the next building.
The bus service runs about every half an hour to either Pwllheli or Porthmadog, another tip is if you show your Bus Pass you get a reduced fare.
The food was always very hot and well cooked with a good choice of dishes.
They do have entertainment and Bingo some evenings and have a well stocked Bar.
